Website update

The website has just received a facelift.  We updated the look and feel with a theme that is higher contrast and more screen reader friendly.  The new theme also significantly improves the mobile “friendliness” with a proper menu and styling.

We have also published the club bylaws.  They can be found under the “About us” menu option.  PLEASE NOTE: The bylaw page is only available to registered members.  If you try to view the page without being logged in, you will receive a page not found message.

Please feel free to give us some feedback on the new look.

 


Cathy Kerr Recreational Division registration.

Hello All Recreational Curlers,

This year marks the 10th Anniversary of the Cathy Kerr International Memorial Bonspiel. It will be held in Ottawa at the RA Centre, 2451 Riverside Dr., from November 28th to November 30th 2014.

You will find at the bottom of this message the invitation/registration form for the 10th Annual Cathy Kerr International Memorial Bonspiel (Recreational Division). I have sent a copy in Word and PDF format

If you are interested in putting together a recreational team, please talk to your fellow rec curlers and send in your completed registration form and your $50/curler entry fee, as soon as possible. DON’T WAIT FOR THE SEPTEMBER 13th, DEADLINE. The reason why the deadline is earlier this year is because of the planning committee wants to make sure everything is in place in time for the event.

If you are unable to put together a 4 person rec team, but still wish to participate as a rec curler in the bonspiel then complete the registration form and select the position you wish to play by placing your name opposite that position on the registration form, and send it along with your individual entry fee $50, and you will be placed on a team if space allows.

Due to the small field of recreational teams in the bonspiel, if there are fewer than the 4 teams (16 curlers) registered by September 13th, the recreational component of this year’s bonspiel will be cancelled leaving additional space to accommodate more competitive teams. You must be willing to commit to the whole weekend in order to be eligible to participate. We hope this does not occur, so don’t delay getting your registration forms in.

If you have any questions that are not answered on the invitation/registration form, please email me.

Cheers, Tyler Sage, Director of Recreational Curling
